Highlights
  • Couchsachraga Peak is an ADK 46er peak in Adirondack Park.
  • "Couchsachraga" is based on an Algonquin or Huron name for the area, meaning "dismal wilderness".
  • The mountain is part of the Santanoni Mountains of the Adirondacks.
  • Couchsachraga Peak is flanked to the east by Panther Peak.
  • There is no marked trail to the forested, viewless summit.
  • The peak was originally thought to be 4,000 feet and was included in the ADK's 46 High Peaks. When a newer survey found it and three other peaks to be lower, the ADK list was not changed.
  • Couchsachraga was often climbed from the Cold River area during the early days of the Forty Sixers. Now it is almost always climbed from herdpaths originating half a mile south of Panther's summit.
